Very slippery, with a smooth ending

I would not buy this in the store. Main reason is that it contains fragrance when the bottle clearly states that it is unscented. I can't stand false advertising, especially because I have sensitive skin and sinuses to most fragrances. I shouldn't have to look through the ingredient list to find out if they are telling the truth about no scent. It also didn't leave my skin any smoother than most decent shaving creams, or even just plain conditioner does.

The very first thing that I noticed after taking this out of the box and looking at it was that it claims to be unscented. The key word here is claims. Right in the ingredient list it says fragrance, so obviously this is scented, so false advertising. I was very wary about trying this out as I do have slightly sensitive skin when it comes to things that have fragrance. You can also definitely smell the fragrance that they added, it's not overpowering, but definitely there. When I did decide to try it out, I had no reaction to the fragrance on most of the parts that I used it on, though I did get some razor bumps on my bikini line which I normally only get when using shaving cream that is scented.

Here is the list of ingredients:
Hydroxyethylcellulose
Glycerin
Sodium laureth sulfate
Isopropyl alcohol
Aloe vera
Tween 20
Carbomer
Fragrance(Aroma)
Di Water
Methylparaben
Propyl paraben

As you cen see this product contains parabens, sodium laureth sulfate - which can irritate sensitive skin, and isopropyl alcohol - which I have found to be irritating to some parts of my body including my hands.

Saying that though, I was quite impressed with this shaving gel. The texture is very slippery, almost goo-like. This makes it very strange to use at first, but it's very easy to spread around, and you only need a little bit for it to work. It does make shaving go faster. It goes on clear so you can actually see what you're doing, and it left my legs nice and smooth, not as dry as some of the other ones I have tried. Though certainly not the best, I still had to use lotion on my legs after shaving.

I really like how the bottle is plastic though. I can't stand that most shaving cream comes in metal containers, they rust so fast, even when not left in the shower. There is also a flip top that is very easy to open, even when your hands are all wet and slippery from the shower. Though because of the easy open flip top, I would not recommend traveling with it as it could easily open in your luggage and spill all over everything.

    Thanks for the review. It's good to know that the fragrance is in the list. I'm very sensitive, especially with shaving product.

    It's a shame the ingredients kind of suck for me, because I love JO products. I'll skip this one.

    Yeah, I was very surprised to see fragrance listed in the ingredients. Especially considering that JO seems to be a great company, there are quite a few of their products that I enjoy using
